Members of the public should continue to dial 999 in an emergency and working crews will respond. Businesses should follow up automatic alarms with a phone call to ensure a response during periods of reduced fire cover.

Strike action was due to take place between midday and 2pm today and between 10.59pm and 11.59pm tonight.

Strikes will be repeated twice a day between 12-1pm and 10.59pm-11.59pm until next Saturday, August 16.
